The Recluse

You don’t care

Because you are afraid

To participate.

To put yourself out there.

You shy away

And insist it’s better

To be alone

In the dark at the end of the day.

You can’t believe

That any other person

Would find in you

Something to see.

Perhaps it is time

To let it all go

And start again.

To know that having a friend is fine.
